Pastry Rolling Problems?


Are you having problems in rolling pastry, Welsh cake mixture or other mixture that needs to be rolled? How do you roll your pastry evenly to the thickness of a pound coin? There is a very simple solution. If you use a longer type of rolling pin, the ends of the rolling pin need to be raised off your board. Use strips of plywood or plastic cut to size, about 300mm long x 25mm wide and the thickness that you require. On your floured board place a strip either side, within the length of the rolling pin. Place your mixture between the strips and roll as normal until the rolling pin rolls on the strips. Perfectly even thickness. To roll thicker mixtures, Welsh cakes and scones just add more strips to the thickness you need. Works every time
